Last years June game had over 700 players.

The June GBG we will be playing on the largest playing area of the year. All of Splat Tag's paintball fields, main parking area and new back land will be in play. This is the only event this year that will be this big. Twice the playing size of any other event we will have, including the fall Resident Evil GBG.

Giant Big Game will start at 9am and go to 6pm.

Entry is $45 if bought before May 1st. After May 1st and on game day $50.

Paintballs will be sold for $55/2000 and $15/500. Paint can be purchased at the Registration tent or at either Teams Main Reinsertion points. (No paint tickets this year.)

Prizes will be given out after the game end around 6:30pm.

A few changes for 2009:
1) ROF capped at 12bps.
2) Air and paint will be ready at each Reinsertion point by the start of the game!
3) No cars/pick up trucks can be used as TANKS.
4) Main Reinsertion points will be moved closer to the main dirt road. Each end of the open field. Similar to the Tents we had a few years back.
5) Towers will now be manned by real players! **
6) Random mission will be located on the field for either team to earn extra points.
7) Generals U2 flights will be limited to 15 minutes. Pass will be needed and can start anywhere on the field.

The year is now 2023 - six years have passed since Minnesota and Wisconsin border skirmishes escalated into all out war between the two states to protect their natural resources and production facilities which they utilize to trade with other parts of the disbanded United States of America for resources they cannot secure on their own.

Many large and potentially decisive battles have been fought over the past six years. However, neither state can hold onto the enemy territory for long due to supply lines being cut from reserve military forces in both states. These battles of attrition take their tolls the most during the winter months when supplies are in dire need to keep troops warm and fed during unnaturally cold weather due to the post-nuclear strike environment.

Each spring and summer sees renewed activity from both sides of the conflict as the warmer weather lends itself to extended military operations. With that being said, extensive resources have been exhausted over the years due to this conflict.

Neighboring states to the south (Iowa and Missouri) and to the west of stalwart Minnesota (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Montana) have sent troops and resources to aid The Midwest Alliance in the upcoming battles due to the limited trading agreements in place prior to all out war breaking out over the boarder conflicts.

The staunch defenders of Wisconsin have called in assistance from what is left of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. These states fight under the banner of The Big Lakes Crusaders (BLC for short). The faster response times due to proximity of these states bodes well for Wisconsin, as they can call in additional support troops much quicker than Minnesota.

The Southern states are involved in conflicts of their own and have yet to throw in with either side of this Northern East/West war beyond roving mercenary/rogue military groups heading north that will fight on the side of the highest bidder for food, shelter and of course fuel/ammo. These roving mercenary/rogue military groups are becoming much more valuable as combat age populations are not being replaced at the rates they are being eliminated due to radiation sickness and conflict.

The question begs to be asked – can either The Midwest Alliance or The Big Lakes Crusaders strike such a decisive victory that they can take over an entire state and hold it? With forces bolstered on each side with fresh troops and renewed supplies, our epic story of survival and post-apocalyptic conflict continues to unfold.

Now the time has arrived to pick a side and grab your trusty paintball gun so you can march off to battle with your fellow soldiers. In the trenches, and through the woods you will watch each other’s backs and defend your positions whatever the cost may be. For failure to do so is not an option…Victory awaits the bold and the daring. TO BATTLE!

It all started In the year 2017 - Four years after a massive asteroid collided with earth, destroying the entire eastern seaboard, eliminating our federal government, crippling our economy, and throwing the entire world into the chaos of a nuclear winter. The United States Federal Government was officially disbanded and governing responsibilities where handed down to the state & local level governments. Tensions rose as the remaining states in the former U.S. sealed their borders, organized their own military forces, and shored up their defenses to protect their natural resources and ensure the safety of their citizens.

I plan to come for the first time with about 10 buddies. Willl we be able to get on the same team? Also roughly what is the total size of the big game playing field? Acres? Finally how much paint do you recommend i bring. Im not really that trigger happy more of a conservative shot. I was thinking 2 cases?
Thanks,
Ryan

Yes you can all play together.

I would say it is about 1/3 of a mile from Main Base to Main Base.

I have never played in the GBG but would guess 2 cases of paintballs should do.

Hey ryan,

I would ask the registration people.

200 acres I have heard in the past

2 cases should be fine
